LSU vs. Cincinnati
WHEN: Noon Sunday
WHERE: Alex Box Stadium
RANKINGS: LSU is as high as No. 5 and as low as No. 11. Cincinnati is not ranked.
PROJECTED STARTERS: LSU, Sr. LH John Valek III (6-6, 3.15 at Akron) vs. Cincinnati, TBA
ONLINE STREAMING: On SEC Network Plus, accessible on WatchESPN and SECNetwork.com
IN-GAME UPDATES: @Chandler_Rome
WHAT TO WATCH: Valek is a veteran with more than 260 innings of collegiate experience, but he will pitch to contact, won’t overpower hitters and likely won’t strike many out. The LSU defense, which features eight new position players, must be solid behind him to avoid unnecessary base runners.
